My Steadfast Faith Helps Bring My Husband Back to Life
(Minghui.org) After the Chinese Communist Party started its persecution of Falun Dafa in 1999, I was arrested, fired from my job, and sentenced to prison for three years. Fear overcame my husband, and he stopped practicing Falun Dafa.
After he stopped practicing, he had some health problems, specifically coronary heart disease and later, a heart attack in 2012.
Then again in 2016, my husband was admitted to the hospital because of chest pains related to his heart disease. His condition gradually improved over a week, and he was soon ready to be discharged.
On my husband's sixth day in the hospital, however, he suddenly had a heart attack and stopped breathing. Medical staff tried to resuscitate him using CPR, an injection, and a defibrillator, but his EKG showed a flat line. His heart stopped for three minutes, he had no pulse for five minutes, and he had no breathing.
A doctor told me, “He’s gone. You were there when we tried to resuscitate him. We used everything we should have. There’s nothing more we can do. We’ve done our best.”
I was stupefied. My husband had just been talking to me. How come he was gone just like that? I could not believe that it was true.
I walked over to my husband and whispered his name into his ear but saw no response. I raised my voice: “Falun Dafa is good! Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance is good!” I repeated it thirteen times. In my mind, I begged Master Li Hongzhi (the founder of Falun Dafa) to save him. The doctors and nurses looked on with sympathy, and no one tried to stop me.
Suddenly one of the nurses saw gas escaping his oxygen mask and shouted, “There’s breathing! He’s breathing!” The medical staff were shocked to see someone who stopped breathing for so long come back to life. I thanked Master Li for bringing my husband back.
My husband listened to me reading Falun Dafa’s main text Zhuan Falun every day during the rest of his hospital stay. He was discharged ten days later.
I still feel quite shaken whenever I think about that day. I might have lost my husband without Master’s help.
My husband used to be a Falun Dafa practitioner. He was the first one in my family to finish reading Zhuan Falun. Our child and I started practicing Falun Dafa in 1997. My husband was very supportive of my cultivation, and he introduced Falun Dafa to several of his colleagues as well.
